The Long Absence

I’m sat here thinking about why I haven’t blogged since March and to be honest there really are a million reasons but as I’m trying to put them into words they just sound like excuses but here goes… April was spent travelling, in May, school got really busy and then my Grandfather passed away and…

Brotherhood of the World

I was recently nominated for the Brotherhood of the World Blogger Award by the Azra over at Simple Serenity. Firstly somewhat of a disclaimer, I’m not great at doing award posts (I find I’m not great at actually writing about myself…weird I know given my ability to wax lyrical about a cleanser or boutique hotel)…

The Ultimate Christmas Q&A

I read the Ultimate Christmas Q + A over on the lovely Life of Angela and thought I would give it a go. I don’t usually do these sort of posts but I enjoyed reading Angela’s so I hope you’ll enjoy reading mine and if you fancy doing it yourself, it’s not too late! What…

Introducing Lalalab

I remember the days when you would take your roll of film to Boots that had taken you months to use, having carefully selected each shot so as to not waste a single frame, and the anticipation of getting your photographs back, which ones had worked, which hadn’t. I used to create all sorts of…

Catchup

So sorry I haven’t blogged in ages, the last weeks of term at school are always crazy busy and this year it was no exception. If anything this year was actually crazier as we have had a number of close friends leaving Bangkok so we’ve had non-stop parties and celebrations for weeks which of course…

Where Have I Been?

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged. A fact that has been gnawing away at the back of my mind for the past few months. It’s not that I’ve not been travelling. And it’s certainly not that I’ve ceased indulging in beauty products. But I do have a reason for my prolonged absence. I got a…

The Best Delivery…

Today we received a package from England. We weren’t expecting anything so it came as somewhat of a surprise, a lovely surprise of course. Inside was what can only be described as the best delivery ever…two packets of Warburtons Giant Crumpets amongst other things but they were the absolute highlights! Now we would have been…

Visitors, Islands and Goodies

My sister and her boyfriend arrived bringing with them a vast amount of exciting things, many of which I talked about in the post The List. Needless to say, we will be eternally grateful and will make it all last way longer than it ever should at home (except the Mr Kipling French Fancies which…

The List

Whilst we can get most things here in Bangkok, there will always be the odd thing we can’t or that we just miss! With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some of the slightly random things we have asked our visitors to bring out for us. Toothpaste Toothpaste here is terrible, there is…

My Latest Addiction.

Thailand is home to the widest array of non-alcoholic beverages I have ever experienced. From smoothies and blends to iced coffees and juices, there really is something to take any fancy you may have on every street! 6.30am Cha Yen and Iced Latte Dave is a big coffee drinker so has naturally settled into the…

The View

You know those days when you wake up and just really feel alive? Well I’ve had quite a few of those this past week and I think the views from our new apartment have a lot to do with it. We are on the 14th floor, which for Bangkok isn’t even that high but for…

Crazy Weeks…

So sorry for my prolonged absence from the bloggersphere…I am back! The last few weeks just got very crazy as the first school year drew to an end and we moved flats; I did have every intention to blog but I just had very little time to actually do it! So as I mentioned we…
